Help! I can't connect my Powershot SX510 HS to wifi!

 It just says "check settings." I never get this authentication code I'm supposed to get. I've tried two public wifi spots (I'm on vacation, they're all I have) and nothing. Am I the only person having this problem with this camera???

I have the exact same problem and I'm computer savy....I can't imagine what a person with limited knowledge of software must be going through. I love a lot about this camera but the WiFi issues are tremendous!!!

I am also having this problem. I can connect via wi-fi to the PC to transfer images without problems. In the Camera Web Link Settings when I try to Authenticate I get "Busy" on-screen then a Notification to "Set Date/Time". The Date/Time are already set on the camera. I can also ping the camera from the PC when it is set to transter images to the PC, but when trying to Authenticate the ping reply is "Destination host unreachable"

I have the same problem here

 

I am wondering if the culprit is the camera or the computer

 

I have other devices connected to my computer so I guess this is the camera

 

Could there be a simple setting to switch on with the camera. Could anybody from the Canon team  help

My camera hooked up immediately and I could confirm the authenticate the camera when I took my camera and computer to my friends house and used her internet....try that. BUT NOW the Canon iMage Uploader won't work and I can't figure out how to delete the the CIG uploader from my Mac computer so that I can reinstall the program....so I still can't upload pictures to Canon Image Gateway.....

I love the camera but boy oh boy do they need to work on the internet services....

I just got off the phone with Canon technical support. We double checked the date/time setting on the camera and to my surprise I had the year set at 2013, but the other interesting thing was they said I had to turn ON daylight savings time. It worked and I was able to see the Authenticate code on the camera.

I know I am already posting months late to this forum, but I only just tried to run the certification with my canon 510. I am using safari on my iPad Air. Don't know if the problem is that I am using an iPad Air or what. I get the same problem as others, my camera asking me to set time and date. I have tried all combinations of daylight savings/no daylight savings, to no avail. I am currently traveling in thailand (no daylight savings) and would appreciate any help anyone can offer.
